short supply. traffic is a nightmare with miles long backups near every bridge and long waits and big crowds for buses and subways. tempers are flaring over long gas station lines. new york mayor bloomberg says the city is sending bottled water and ready to eat meals in some areas. our area is also sending aid up north. >> in about 30 minutes dominion virginia power will deploy more than 70 trucks and more than 1,000 workers to help new jersey with their cleanup and recovery efforts. >> sherri ly is live at their staging grounds at national harbor with more on this. good morning, sherri. >> reporter: good morning, tony, good morning, allison. this is the largest deployment ever by dominion virginia to send eight to another area out of state. you can see here they've already got their crews, their trucks here. they have line crews

we'll be assisting, does not have to worry about us, except to give us the orders so we can help them get power back on. >> reporter: all of these crews have been working 12-hour shifts for dominion here in virginia since on sunday. now, they have been restoring the power here. dominion was able to get the power back on for more than 200,000 customers hit by sandy. that allowed them to free up people to head up to new york and new jersey and given the extensive damage there, they are planning, or expecting those crews to be up there as long as two weeks to get all that power back on. that's the latest here at national harbor. back to you. >> sherri, thank you so much. fox's jennifer davis joins now. she is in ocean city, new jersey this morning. jennifer has a look at the conditions on the hard hit coast, four days later. good morning to you, jennifer. >> reporter: good morning,
allison. after four days they still can't get around a number of the streets here in ocean city. these are more streets that were swallowed up by sea water. they are packed with several inches of this dense wet sand. it's been very difficult to clear, even though you can tell they made some headway. that way it looks really bad. they still don't have power around here in a number of places. schools are closed. there's so much debris and damage to deal with. here and up and down the jersey coast it's not just about the physical damage, but the emotional toll. the massive damage left behind from the storm has some homeowners breaking down in tears. >> i just spent $30,000 getting my home repaired and it's all gone. >> 22 years i've been in my home.

accident activity reported along westbound 216 after 29 near the elementary school. that's a check of your fox 5 on- time traffic. julie, thank you very much. this is a final weekend for candidates to make their case to voters. also the last weekend voters in maryland and virginia will be bombarded with calls and endless tv and radio ads. joining us for a look at the final stretch, former democratic virginia congressman and current president and ceo of the american progress action fund. we're also joined by former national campaign official with the mccain/palin presidential ticket and cofounder of project virginia. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> let's talk about the presidential race first. it seems this race is neck and neck. i don't know -- i don't know who's going to win. let me get -- i'm sure you each
have an idea. let's talk first of all about president obama's chances. couple of months ago, let's say three, four months ago, it really looked like this was his to lose. and now there are some indications that he may lose. what do you attribute that to? >> first of all, i think you expect these things to narrow in a closely divided country. the economy has recovered at a slow rate, but has recovered and i think that's been a lot of the factor. do people feel like we've recovered enough to give the president a chance to keep building on that or try a different route? enough of the midwestern states, that probably will be decisive. but the one poll that matters is on election day. the reality is, depends on who shows up and votes. >> absolutely, this will be a nail biter. i think the turning point was october 3rd in the first presidential debate when mitt romney came out and showed he was a principle but practical
candidate for president. since that point basically the obama strategy, which was to hit mitt, tear him down and say he wasn't who he said he was, and the voters saw the essential practical and he started rising in the polls. he said i want to work across party lines and that's really the point now. >> let's talk about, though, if the -- whoever wins, if congress still is not -- if congress is controlled and the senate is controlled by the party that doesn't represent the president, are we still going to have that bitterness, that rivalry, that people not getting along and not getting anything done? ford i'll start with you. >> we need to come together to fix our problems and i think one of the big things that was noted that voters are taking into account is who can work better with congress. the latest ap poll says mitt romney is better positioned to
do that. again, whoever wins the white house will have a tough task ahead of them. >> it is. i don't think we'll get rid of the bitterness, but that doesn't mean we won't get something done. the stakes are high with the fiscal cliff, the tax side, the revenue side, a whole lot of things. so this is going to be a moment for statesmanship and i think in a way, while i think the president will win in the end, it will be close, and as was mentioned by mr. o'connell, the transition happened when romney went from more an extreme conservativist position to the middle. i think it's something members in congress should take note of, americans will award those coming to the middle in trying solve a problem. i believe the president will win, and i believe the senate will remain in the democratic hands and the house the republican, and as people come together, i think it should be a recognition that they want folks to come together and solve these problems. i think the president has tried to make his case he's ready to
do that. >> ford looks anxious. >> i don't think the president will win, but i think it will be close, and the question really is who will win ohio. we may not know because of november 17th. i think locally mitt romney will win virginia, and if he wins virginia, florida, ohio, colorado or new hampshire, he'll be the next president. i think the president at this moment has a little bit better chance in the electoral college. >> i can't offer to shave my mustache when we win ohio, but i think that will happen. but i think in virginia you'll get a close race, one way or the other. i think you've seen tim kaine pull away from allen and made the case for himself as tough decisions he's had to make as governor. that will be a key senate race to watch, not just for where the commonwealth goes, but could control the senate. i think that's trending in a good direction for tim kaine. >> let me get your thoughts as
well, looks like if you look at the poll numbers, kaine has pulled ahead of allen. do you think he has a shot? >> if obama wins virginia two or 3-points lease likely to -- he's likely to drag mr. allen across. allens a polls say he's up one. i think this will be a nail biter race like the presidential race. i think it could be a possible split. if there was a split in the vote, i think the better vote would be romney/kaine. >> people want to believe that you want the job. i think that was one of the problems the president faced in the first debate. came in strong in the subsequent debates. i think there's been some concern about how committed george allen is to wanting this job. whereas kaine has been out there working hard, including in very red parts of the state, talking about how as governor
he was able to work with republicans in the legislature. will be down to the wire. >> for those watching at home, really the key i think is to watch prince williams county. whichever candidate has won that county has gone on to win. >> yeah. i would say the one stat to look at in virginia is the gender gap. i think if mitt romney is able to close what was a gap in virginia, i think that's his best chance if he can't close that gap, i think we'll see the president win. >> i think at the same time the president has to close the male gap as well. both candidates are struggling, president obama is doing a little bit better with female voters and mitt romney is doing better with male voters. >> we have about 30 seconds left. but i want to talk about the gender gap quickly. why do you think romney has made better strides in terms of closing that gap recently? >> again, you expect some of these things to close, but he hasn't been able to stand up to the more extreme views in his
party. not just issues of abortion, but equal pay. in rural counties, women are more likely to be the bread winner in the house. equal pay is a kitchen table issue. i think mr. romney had a great chance to show leadership there and hasn't and women noticed that. >> ford? >> mitt romney is closing that gap because women have suffered more economically under the obama administration than men. for that reason, the economy is the top issue and mitt romney is leading virginia on the issue of the economy and who will be a stronger leader. definitely we're going to find out on election day. >> everyone needs to get out and vote. >> or the day after, or the day after that. thank you both for coming in and hopefully we'll see you next week. >> thank you so much. >> we appreciate it. stay with us. we'll be right back. it's 7:39. he attackeforty-seven peent of aricans. his companies shipped jobs overseas. his plan cuts millionaires' taxes, but raises yours.
he'll voucherize medicare... and make catastrophic cuts to education. so remember what romney said... and what his plan would do. president obama: i'm barack obama and... i approve this message.

would ban all abortions and contraception seemed a bit extreme. so i looked into it. turns out, romney doesn't oppose contraception at all. in fact, he thinks abortion should be an option in cases of rape, incest, or to save a mother's life. this issue's important to me, but i'm more concerned about the debt our children will be left with. i voted for president obama last time, but we just can't afford four more years.

new jersey. millions have no power and food and clean water are short supply. traffic is a nightmare with miles long backups near every bridge and long waits and big crowds for buses and subways. tempers are flaring over long gas station lines. new york mayor bloomberg says the city is sending bottled water and ready to eat meals in some of the hardest hit areas. dominion virginia power is deploying crews and trucks to help with recovery efforts. sherri ly is live at national harbor where crews are on their way out. >> reporter: the first contingent of trucks pulled out of here a few minutes ago. you can see the rest of the crews here still gearing up. they'll be leaving in waves actually headed to new jersey, where help is desperately needed to restore power to millions of people. dominion is sending 1500
people. these are linemen, tree trimmers and other workers needed to get the power back on. they're headed to a staging area in lakewood, new jersey first, between 200 and 250 bucket trucks. sandy made landfall in new jersey four days ago, causing devastation. the crews will be self- sufficient. they'll have their own trailers to sleep in and all the food and water they need. these crews have been working 12-hour shifts since sunday to restore power here, and now they're headed to new jersey to help those hardest hit. >> they help with restoration in our dominion service area, and now they'll be working up there, we anticipate they could be there as long as two weeks, but let's hope not. >> a lot of pride in what these guys do. when the lights come on and the neighborhood cheers, they really like it. >> reporter: dominion already has underground line crews in new york helping to restore
power in lower manhattan. they sent tree trimmers earlier this week to the northeast. it is the largest mobilezation effort ever for dominion to send crews to help out of state. i talked to one lineman earlier today and he says it's tough to be away from your family for so long. but when you get to these areas and see what they're going through, the devastation, how long they've been without power, you think about those people and the food you're doing. that's the latest in national harbor, back to you. >> sherri, thank you very much. the timing could not be worse, but forecasters say the weather wary east coast could see another storm next week. it would not be another hurricane sandy situation and it's still too soon to tell. but it could include snow in new england and high winds snare owes hit hard by sandy. sandy's impact on the election is unclear, but it
won't stop voters in the garden state. officials say they'll deploy military trucks to serve as polling places tuesday. they are also extending the deadline for mail-in ballots. only a few days until americans do head to the polls. and president obama is back on the campaign trail after a pause for sandy. after campaigning in wisconsin, nevada, colorado yesterday, he has three stops in battleground ohio today. tomorrow the president will appear in manassas with bill clinton and singer dave matthews. yesterday's new york mayor michael bloomberg on yesterday endorsed president obama. mitt romney starts the day with a rally in wisconsin and heads to ohio for two more campaign events. he'll join his wife and running mate paul ryan for a rally tonight in westchester, ohio. tony? allison, another election curve ball comes out today, in

prosecutors admit the crime was serious, but say brown receives credit for accepting responsibility. prince george's county police officer will be in court for a bond hearing today. one day after being indicted on an attempted murder charge. prosecutors say sergeant johnnie riley shot and wounded kalvin kyle after kyle climbed out of a police cruiser and tried to run away. kyle was in handcuffs at the time. this happened along county road in september after riley pulled over kyle for speeding on a stolen motorcycle. kyle is now paralyzed from the waist down. the nationwide manhunt for a virginia man accused of trying to kill his ex- girlfriend and two police officers using pipe bombs has ended in montana. 25-year-old laurence alan stewart ii was caught after a brief police chase. stewart threw a pipe bomb at them during the pursuit. officers deflated his tires using spike strips. he was initially pulled over for speeding. he'll be extradited back to virginia to face several

temperatures will remain on the cool side saturday and sunday. we should be nice and dry. lots of big games, lots of outdoor activities. i know tony's son has a big football game saturday morning. going to be fine for that. and if you're going to redskins sunday afternoon, should be fine for that, too. accu weather seven-day forecast, 55 today. cool this weekend. election day, tuesday, could be rain. got to watch this nor'easter. now i'm putting it in for wednesday, but could arrive tuesday afternoon. highs in the low 50s. that's weather. happy friday, julie. >> happy friday indeed. on the roads now, you'll find lanes open around the capitol beltway. stop and go action through college park and the accident at 270. commute northbound 295 through southeast a slow go leaving the naval research lab. 14 minutes now. that's with all lanes open. tapping the brakes on the inner loop of the beltway headed to

year-old girl who was crying and saying, i'm tired of obama and mitt romney, i feel the same way. >> the funny thing about sandy, chris, we lost a couple of really good days, and suddenly, you know, in our days from now it's the election. >> that's right. but, you know, people are going to -- if you're in the eye of the storm in new jersey or new york, maybe not quite so much, but the vast majority of the country i think is ready to probably not to hear any more campaigning, but to vote and elect a president. >> on sunday, it will be down to two days and you're talking about the important 48 hours with high level workers. >> exactly. this race is so close. i would throw out the polls at this point. down to one or two points, they're meaningless. it's field operation, who can get out more of their vote, more of their supporters. we'll be talking to david
axelrod with the obama campaign. he's very important, the political director of the romney campaign, he knows how many people they have already produced in every state in terms of early voting, absentee balloting. he says, obviously his side is spinning it, but he says they're optimistic and think they're overperforming in a lot of the swing states and the obama camp is underperforming. on tuesday, the spin stops . >> wednesday we'll be blurry eyed. you are going to be live this sunday from campaign -- excuse me, election headquarters in new york city. is that still the plan? >> yeah, absolutely. our fox news election headquarters where we'll be doing all our coverage the next few days, including and especially on election night. look, i think it's possible with the race so close in so many states, because you have to throw out the exit polls and count the ballots one by one, i think it will be the old fashioned thing, where you go to bed, don't know, and wake up
in the morning and the morning anchors are telling you so and so, either the same president or new president. >> we look forward to all that. on a personal note, did you do okay in the storm? >> yeah. i think generally speaking, knock on wood, when you look at what happened in new jersey and new york, we were lucky. >> sure were. chris, thank you so much. look forward to the show on sunday. and of course, you can catch chris and fox news sunday here at 9:00 right after fox 5 morning news. tony, over to you. thank you much. it's 8:20 on this friday morning. coming up next, the top 10 reasons to vote early, presented by vice president joe biden. >> and later, the best the region has to offer all in one place. holly will join us live from the metro cooking show with a look at some of the speciality food exhibits. we'll be right back. anncr: which do you believe? what mitt romney's tv ads say about women?
or what mitt romney himself says? mitt romney: do i believe the supreme court... should overturn roe v. wade? yes. and it would be my preference that they, that they... reverse roe v. wade. hopefully reverse roe v. wade. overturn roe v. wade. planned parenthood, we're going to get rid of that. i'll cut off funding to planned parenthood. anncr: no matter what mitt romney's ads say. we know what he'll do. president obama: i'm barack obama and... i approve this message.
if you vote early, you don't have to pay taxes. i'm sorry, i'm being told that's not accurate. >> vice president joe biden doing david letterman's top 10 list last night. two very big and very
different movies opens today. the animated film called wreck it ralph hits theaters. our film critic liked it and gave if a four and a half out of five. >> also, flight starring denzel washington opens today. kevin says it's already gaining oscar buzz, but the screening was canceled because of hurricane sandy. he'll see it tomorrow morning, and you can catch his review on twitter. >> two good ones. >> i want to see both of those. >> i do, too. >> i'd love to see them boeing this weekend. >> why not? >> things always come up. but i'm going to try. >> we'll expect a progress report monday. >> i will give you one. still ahead, the redskins take on the panthers this weekend, as two heisman winners face off at fed ex field. >> that's not the only game to get excited about. d.c. united opens up on their home turf. the team president joins us live when fox 5 morning news
continues. it's 8:24. [ minto ] you know, those ads saying mitt romney would ban all abortions and contraception seemed a bit extreme. so i looked into it. turns out, romney doesn't oppose contraception at all. in fact, he thinks abortion should be an option in cases of rape, incest, or to save a mother's life. this issue's important to me, but i'm more concerned about the debt our children will be left with. i voted for president obama last time, but we just can't afford four more years. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message.
we're getting our first live pictures from the scene of a deadly police involved shooting in the district. an officer was stabbed by a suspect before he shot the man. that suspect has now been pronounced dead. this happened just before 7:00 this morning in the 3500 block of 17th street northeast. we still do not know the condition of the police officer. making headlines in the day ahead, an arraignment hearing for two top penn state administrators. prosecutors say the two covered up allegations against jerry sandusky. it comes a day curly and shultz and the former president spannier were indicted for their role in the scandal. the ipad mini goes on sale
today, and apple fans around the world have been lining up. but the crowds are smaller than we've seen for previous apple products. here's a look from tokyo. we've seen just a handful of people outside stores in our area. the 7.9-inch mini is priced higher than rival gadgets. models start at $329. do you have to wear a costume to buy it? >> apparently. the final journey for space shuttle "atlantis." it begins a slow 10-mile trip from one part of the kennedy space center to its final resting place in another part of the space center. the trip will take all day. it includes stops for ceremony and public viewing. it's the last shuttle to be permanently parked. heads up this morning, don't be alarmed if you see snow plows around rfk stadium today. around 700 snow plow drivers will do a dry run to make sure they are prepared for winter. the district will also make sure they are up-to-date with what needs to be done when it
snows. i would hope they would know that. >> those guys are incredible drivers. they have this huge truck they bring down a narrow road. >> yep. >> it's why i always get right behind them. >> they love that. >> yeah. your forecast, it's looking all right. we're heading in the right direction. little bit slow getting towards that sunshine this week. >> just a little cold and cloudy? >> basically that's what i'm trying to say. >> in a nice way. >> trying to do the friday version of it, put the polish on it. >> i like it. >> turn your clocks back there weekend. extra hour to snooze. that's the bonus. clocks fall back here early sunday morning. our sun will set, if you're interested, sunday afternoon in the 5:00 hour. we're going to start to lose an hour of sunlight on the back end of our days. it is cool. 42degrees now in washington. 34 in manassas. 34 culpeper. overnight lows reached the freezing mark in many areas.
expect afternoon highs in the mid-50s with a mix of clouds and i think we'll see more sunshine than the last couple of days. latest disturbance coming through. one sprinkle north and west of the city early. you can see the cloud cover. hang in there. we'll get more afternoon sunshine. the trend will be to finally get the clouds out of here for the weekend. both saturday, if you're going to the d.c. united game, and sunday if you're going to the redskins game, both look fine. will be cool, particularly tomorrow night. 55 today. partly sunny skies. still cool, winds out of the west at 5 to 10. accu weather seven-day forecast, tuesday and wednesday, the possible coastal nor'easter and could bring rain along with chilly temperatures for the end of election day on tuesday, and into wednesday. still question marks about the timing of it. >> thank you, sir. it is time for a little
sports breakfast. the redskins d'angelo hall will not be suspended. he was kicked out of last week's game for an incident with an official. reports the league decided to fine him instead of a sus suspension. still no word on how much he'll have to pay. the nfl has yet to make an official announcement. meantime, the redskins are rocking a different look this weekend. they'll wear their 1937 throwback jerseys sunday. and helmet and pants. it's all throw back. they'll be taking on cam newton and the carolina panthers. no, no, not those helmets. >> no leather helmets. >> no. thank you, tucker. >> tucker! >> not wearing leather helmets. also this weekend, the wizards welcome the celtics for the season home opener. tipoff saturday at 7:00. lots of sports this weekend. in fact, let's go back over to tucker for another big sports opening set for tomorrow night.
you got it, tony. the first time in five years, d.c. united back in the playoffs. their opening game this weekend. not looking at them there. the opening game is this weekend. the schedule got changed a little bit. want to welcome with me here d.c. united team president kevin payne. honor to have you here. congratulations on a great season. >> thanks very much. nice to be back in the playoffs. it's where we think we belong. been successful in the playoffs a lot of times in our past. looking forward to getting underway tomorrow night. >> going to talk a little soccer. tell me about this season's success. >> i think our young group has begun to mature. we have the second youngest team in the league. we lost the league mvp with eight games to go in the season. but we had a great run after that. and took almost maximum points from those games. that's what pushed us to sec place in the east.
the staff, and general manager done an awesome job. >> first time in the playoffs in five years. your team will earn second seed, which normally would give you home team advantage, but unfortunately with the hurricane, what's going to happen here? >> we worked very hard to get home field advantage and we think it's important. but ultimately, there are bigger issues at stake here. the devastation in new jersey really made it impossible for the red bulls to host a game tonight. so in consultation with them, and with the league, we agreed though give up our home field advantage and it's significant in our league and play the match tonight at rfk, and the wednesday match next week will be played, we hope, at red bull. >> i guess for people that don't follow soccer, the tie breaker might be played up there? >> right. the easiest way to explain it, think of our two games as each is a half of a game, so at the
end of the two games, aggregate score determines the winner. if it's tied at the end of regulation of the second game, then we go into a mini game, and penalty kick. you want that at home. >> it's a two game playoff and our game is tomorrow night at rfk. what can we expect? doing the blackout? >> yes. the blackout is back. the blackout has always worked for us in the past. the game is at 8:00. people who might have had tickets for the wednesday game, they'll work tomorrow night. we are telling people, if they can't come tomorrow night, already bought a ticket for wednesday, they'll get their money back. we're expecting a sell out of the lower bowl in the mezzanine section. >> if people are interested, still tickets available? >> there are tickets available now. they're going pretty fast. but there are still some good seats available. we encourage people to try to act today if they want to come tomorrow night. >> looking at the long-term future, i've been a big follower since the team got started in the '90s.
i remember going to the games. great history there. i've noticed the last couple of years many teams getting their own stadium. are we getting closer here in washington? >> we are. you shared with me you were at the '97 championship game, the largest crowd in history for anything at the rfk stadium. we've had conversations with the mayor's office and key council members and think we are closer than we've ever been. touch wood, the mayor is coming tomorrow night. we'll be happy to see him there. we're confident something will get done and we'll have the right kind of home in d.c. >> and helps to have a winning team, and with a young team, looks like we have the foundation for several years of success. and ben olson is a local favorite. we love having him as coach. looking forward to many years of success. >> we hope so. we're going to work hard at it. >> everybody come out tomorrow night, support your home team. wear the colors and keep our fingers crossed, we need a big win tomorrow night, and we can
